AUSTIN -- FEMA says it won't reimburse Central Texas residents whose homes were damaged in the Halloween floods.
The government agency sent a notification this week that individual assistance was not being awarded.
FEMA typically gives individual assistance in disasters with more than 850 damaged or destroyed homes. The Halloween floods hit close to 700 homes.
According to our partners at the Austin American-Statesman, residents may still see aid coming their way. The individual assistance ruling does not affect the money FEMA is giving to local governments.
That money will help fund the home buyout programs by the City of Austin and Travis County.
